These low carb onion rings, are seriously the real deal! These paleo onion rings bring back memories of being a kid at the fair. You can fry them (so good!) or oven bake them for a lower fat option.
Decide if you want to fry or bake your onion rings. I personally like them fried the best (as they are so much like "the real thing"). But I still enjoy them baked too. Both methods are listed below.
Mix fry batter ingredients together.
Peel onions, and slice into rings about 1/4 inch thick.
Dredge onion rings into tahini batter.
If frying: Start by heating up a few Tablespoons of the palm shortening (or preferred fat for frying) in a pan on the stove top, over medium heat. (I add in more oil as needed over the cooking time)
Gently lay a few onion rings into the pan with the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry on each side for a couple of minutes, until golden brown. If your onion rings brown too quickly, turn the heat down a notch.
Preheat oven to 400*F.
You can bake them at 400*F for 18 to 22 minutes.
I like to serve them with homemade (dairy-free) ranch dressing, honey mustard, or my cranberry ketchup. - I also like adding the leftovers to sandwich wraps the next day.
You can buy tahini at most grocery stores, including Whole Foods and for $3.50 for a jar at Trader Joes, or buy it on Amazon via this link: http://amzn.to/2g1b81y
